Every choice has consequences-but seventeen-year-old Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness. Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous, protective Warden that she never thought could be hers. Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust. Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin-the deadliest of demons-has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around her, including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city-and her race-from destruction. Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side-and then fight like hell.
Okay, so I’ve actually been re-listening to the audiobooks of the previous two books in this series because I wanted to refresh my memory before listening to Every Last Breath, and I have to admit, reading about Roth again makes my heart squeal like ssjkdgafgkjfg.
BE STILL, MY BEATING HEART.
Every Last Breath was everything I expected and more. I mean, it’s Jennifer L. Armentrout, and she is definitely one of those authors that never ceases to amaze me with her writing, and amazing story lines. This whole trilogy ended with a bang, and I could never be more satisfied with it. I felt like it all came to a smooth end, in terms of the characterization and how each character actually grew, mentally and emotionally throughout this whole series.
Through hell and back, Layla has been one of my favorite MCs, because we could all relate to her. I mean, sure we’re not half-demon, half-gargoyle but she has insecurities like normal girls do, and it was heartwarming to see her going from degrading herself to believing in herself, and I definitely think that that was one of the best things about this book.
ROTH. IS. SEXY. I mean, Zayne tried to creep into my heart a million times, but NUUUUPE, it’s all for Roth HAHA. I love seeing the whole Zayne-Roth dynamics, especially when they put aside their differences to fight against a common enemy. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that they have a bromance there, but they’re pretty cool together.
Some parts were definitely heartbreaking and I wish I could go into the book and change that part, but I guess that’s what makes it real. I would have been dubious had this book ended without any hints of heartbreaks or deaths, yknow? I really really love this trilogy and I wouldn’t mind rereading it again, because guys, IT IS REALLY GOOD. OMG.
I need me a Roth.
